Hey all, I'm coaching a local high school girls team, and one of the things I hope to work on with the top 2 or 3 girls is thinking about patterns. For example, last month I had them hit 3 inside-out forehands, then take one inside-in (I was trying to teach them to 'dictate' with the forehand). The other day I had them hit 2 cross-court backhands, then step around and take the forehand inside-in. After they got the hang of that, I added an inside-out forehand. Effectively, I want them to work on point construction, think about being more aggressive, and finally finishing at the net. Most just react to their opponents shots, but some of the competing schools have top 2 or 3 girls that are already 4.5s. Simply reacting will result in a quick 10-2 defeat. So, are there any well known patterns I can work on with them? Most can't hit a slice backhand, and there's not much time to teach them how to hit one, but two of them can hit a decent drop shot.
